Introduction to Lustre
Lustre* is an open-source, global single-namespace, POSIX-compliant, distributed parallel file system designed for scalability, high-performance, and high-availability. Lustre runs on Linux-based operating systems and employs a client-server network architecture. Storage is provided by a set of servers that can scale to populations measuring up to several hundred hosts. Lustre servers for a single file system instance can, in aggregate, present up to tens of petabytes of storage to thousands of compute clients, with more than a terabyte-per-second of combined throughput.
The Lustre Systems Administration Guide describes the various components of Lustre, and provides an overview of how to configure Lustre.
